The proliferation and differentiation of mammalian intestinal epithelial cells is stringently regulated. Recent studies have identified several markers for intestinal stem cells that reside in the crypt compartment of the intestinal epithelium. The presentation will focus on the role of a number of Kr├╝ppel-like transcription factors (KLFs) in regulating proliferation of intestinal stem cells.
